NovaBACKUP Solutions for PSQL Databases
Installing and running your database environment is only one piece of the business database environment -- you MUST also have a proper backup solution in order to sleep soundly at night. The first level of protection is the venerable backup. For smaller users of non-critical databases, periodic backups may provide all of the protection that you need.
With Pervasive databases, you can do backups during application downtime windows, or you can use the built-in Continuous Operations Mode feature of the database, as explained in our most popular white paper. However, managing backups can also be a chore for the small business owner. Luckily, this is something that is easily automated, which can save you time and aggravation.
Goldstar Software Inc. has used many different backup packages over the years, both internally and at our client sites. We have found an excellent line of backup solutions from NovaStor that addresses the most common needs of the small business solution. The NovaBACKUP product line works seamlessly with the Pervasive/Actian PSQL database to obtain proper backups, and is provided through simple license options, based on what you want to protect:
- NovaBACKUP PC: This is the low-cost solution to protect workstations and laptops running Windows XP through Windows 8.
- NovaBACKUP Server: This solution protects servers running Windows Server 2003, 2008, and 2012.
- NovaBACKUP Business Essentials: Protecting Windows Server and Small Business Server operating systems, including special agents for SQL Server, Exchange, and an unlimited number of Virtual Machines on VMWare or Hyper-V.
- NovaBACKUP Network: This solution is designed for sites with up to 4 servers needing to be backed up. The multi-streaming backup jobs provide faster backups (and recoveries) than the Business Essentials product, and this is a good stepping stone to faster performance and better features (such as tape libraries) without jumping to the NovaStor enterprise products.
Each of these solutions includes the following features:
- Ability to Perform Full, Differential and Incremental Backups
- Ability to Perform Disaster Recovery Backups, at NO EXTRA CHARGE
- Ability to Perform DR Restores to Dissimilar Hardware, at NO EXTRA CHARGE
- Target Support Including Tape, Disk, USB, DVD/CD, NAS, and More
- Compatability with Pervasive PSQL and Actian PSQL Databases
- 2GB of Online Storage FREE for the First Year through NovaStor Partners
- NovaCare Premium Support for Phone and Remote Support, as well as Product Upgrade Protection (Optional for NovaBACKUP PC)
